VS Gallery submission rules
Submission rules for the group are lenient, accepting all forms of artwork regardless of quality as long as they're relevant to some degree to the Super Smash Bros. series. However, there are some rules you must keep in mind. We are a Smash Bros. group, not a Nintendo group. What this means is, we will not accept submissions on the basis of them being Nintendo related. As such, your submitted work must have something to do with Smash Bros., or involve characters directly involved in the series. Any submitted work that was stolen will not be accepted here. Any submitted work that uses edited official artwork will not be accepted. For Brawl snapshots to be accepted, they must be decrypted images from the snapshot file, or snapshots taken from a capture card/emulator. Photographs of the tv screen will be rejected. For more on this and to learn how to decrypt your snapshots, read this journal [link] Submit your work to the correct folders. Submissions to a folder that is deemed to not be the most appropriate, but acceptable, will still be accepted, but moved after being admitted to the group's gallery (for example, a picture of Pikachu fighting Link being submitted to the Pokemon folder, where it will be accepted, but moved to the Brawling folder). However, submissions to a blatantly inappropriate folder will result in rejection (for example, submitting the aforementioned Pikachu vs. Link picture to the Super Mario Bros. folder will result in rejection of the submission). Artwork that trash or depict any character in a defaming matter will not be accepted. Submissions with mature content are not allowed. Please keep it appropriate for younger members of the group. Submitted work must be completed, WIPs will not be accepted. While the group currently does not have a submission limit installed, you are expected to submit a reasonable amount of submissions at a time. If you make an excessive amount of submissions in a short period, your submissions will be rejected. What constitutes as excessive is at the moderators' discretion. Continued attempted abuse of the lack of a submission limit will result in your ability to submit to the group's gallery being revoked. We do not want the inboxes of our group's members being flooded with watch messages from this group, and we want those who submit to have a fair chance at their work being seen. Submissions from those who join the group, submit, and immediately leave will be rejected. Do not bother submitting to the group if you do not plan on being a part of it.
If any of your submissions are rejected, the moderator who rejected them will explain to you why they were. If a moderator does not explain the rejection though and you wish to inquire why, ask on the group page or through a note to the group if you wish to keep it private (remember to be respectful and polite in your inquiry).Blog submission rules
Any member of the group is allowed to submit a blog. To be accepted and posted however, it must be about the following: Any notable news about the Super Smash Bros. series, or its community (includes news about competitive play, and notable Smash Bros. sites). Surveys relating to the Super Smash Bros. series. A Smash Bros. related get together/event for the group on the group's chatroom, such as an online Smash Fest. (Note however, blogs that are just asking people to Brawl you will not be accepted. If you're looking for someone to Brawl, you can visit the group's chatroom, ask a member of the group on the active Brawlers list, or leave a comment about it on the group page.) An informative, questioning, or opinion blog on content within the Super Smash Bros. series (however, such blogs are expected to have a minimum acceptable level of content, and may be rejected if they are extremely insubstantial). A Smash Bros. related contest or tournament being hosted for the group. However, it must explicitly be a contest/tournament for the group, and not your own personal contest. As for some additional rules regarding hosting contests/tournaments for the group:
*While moderators will intend to interfere as little as possible, if at all, they will have the right to make any changes they deem necessary to the contest/tournament (moderators will discuss the changes with the contest/tournament host first though).
*Do not expect moderators, or anyone else in the group, to help support any prize for the contest/tournament. Other members in the group may help out with a prize if they choose so, but no one within the group is obligated to.
*If you name a prize at any time for the contest/tournament, you are expected to supply it in its entirety. Failure to do so will result in your privilege to host group contests/tournaments being revoked.
*Contests/tournaments are expected to be hosted in a proper and ethical manner. Severe mismanagement or manipulating the contest/tournament in any way will result in your contest/tournament being cancelled if still in progress, as well as your privilege to host being revoked.
Here are some additional rules regarding submitted blogs on what is not allowed: As expected, any blog that is trolling, defaming, highly negative, or contain inappropriate content will not be accepted, regardless of its relevancy to Smash Bros. Blogs about group news will not be accepted, as they're expected to be handled by the group's moderators. However, an exception will be made if you were given permission by a moderator to write a blog regarding group news. While you're not expected to have masterful writing and a blog free of typos, spelling, and grammar errors, blogs are expected to be legible. As such, blogs that are poorly written and show little to no care of its legibility, to where reading and understanding it is difficult, will be rejected.
Like with submissions to the gallery, if a submitted blog of yours is rejected, you will be notified of why. If a blog idea of yours is not covered in the above, and/or you're unsure if it will be allowed, you are encouraged to ask about it, whether through the group page, a note to the group, or asking a moderator directly.CONTACT:If you have any questions about group rules and functions, feel free to ask an administrator:
